Progressing the scientific basis of indoor environmental quality is essential to understand which aspects can be better optimised to substantially reduce energy use in buildings. In recent years, IEA Energy in Buildings and Communities (EBC) international research projects have been investigating for this purpose both indoor air quality and thermal comfort.

The project belongs to a larger urban intervention with the new Grand Parc in Bordeaux, with green area and public spaces, and it occupies a central place in redefining the neighbourhood. It also has an identity vocation because it constitutes a visual catch from the perspective created by the plot where it is located. The volume, simple but slightly decomposed, expresses the public and private use of the building and highlights a forecourt that opens on the urban project of the Grand Parc.

In July, the House of Commons Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee released a report which was highly critical of the current lack of progress in building energy efficiency work, particularly in England. The report urged a seven-fold increase in the installation rate. “A major upgrade of the energy performance of the UK’s entire building stock will be a fundamental pillar of any credible strategy to reach net zero emissions, to address fuel poverty and cut energy bills,” the committee told the government.”

The purpose of HVAC systems is to provide and maintain environmental conditions, including proper airflow, relevant humidity, heating, and cooling in a specific area to ensure thermal comfort and indoor air quality. In the context of recent threats, special attention should be paid to the built environment. People usually spend their 90% time indoor; it is essential to understand the potential transmission dynamic of COVID-19 within the building environments. The building's environment plays an important role in infection transmission.
